As many times as I ask my doc how a drug works, 9 out of 10 times he'll say "I don't know" It used to annoy me but now I realize he's being honest. Sometimes he give me a gray, fuzzy answer and lose me in the explanation and then I'm sorry I asked in the first place.
Plus if you read about these drugs on this site you will know more than the doc anyway so you really don't have to ask the question at all unless you want to see how much the doc knows or doesn't know.
Bottom line... as much as my doc knows or doesn't know about how these drugs work he is the one I trust to choose which medication is the right one to try next.
